The Armenia-submitted Genocide Prevention Resolution, which was adopted at the 28th session of the UN Human Rights Council, proves that Armenia is struggling not only for recognition of the Armenian Genocide, but also for preventing further genocides, Director of the Institute of Oriental Studies Ruben Safrastyan told Tert.am. This most important initiative succeeded. Armenia is thus not only showing its concern, but is also taking specific steps. “This way of action must become one of our diplomatic priorities,” Mr Safaryan said. As regards the importance of the resolution in the context of international recognition and condemnation of the Armenian Genocide, the scholar stressed that the entire civilized world is well aware Armenia’s initiative is no coincidence. Expert in Turkic studies Ruben Melkonyan says that genocide prevention is a panhuman task, and the resolution adopted by the UN Human Rights Council is evidence that the organization is responsible for dealing with the humankind’s problems in the right way. Armenia’s initiative must be considered within context of the Armenian Genocide centennial. “We can suppose that the adoption of the resolution is at least a political ‘message’ to the entire world, particularly to Turkey. We can regard the resolution as silent support for the opinions on the Armenian Genocide. That is, without placing any emphasis, the UN is condemning Turkey, urging it to admit the Armenian Genocide.” The entire civilized world is well aware that Armenia is champion of international recognition of the Armenian Genocide, and this is one of Armenia’s foreign policy priorities.
